A journey through local life


This ride is for the people who want to cover a bit more of the island. If you are coming by ship, I will cruise with you trough the town before we leave all the way up from sea level to 1818 mt high, to the highest peak of the island reachable by car! Taking the roads of the island, stopping whenever a good photo opportunity arises! In Pico do Arieiro will stay as long as you wish, for a short walk (optional) on the mountain slope, just before we begin our descent to more conventional altitudes and reach Santana, where there are the traditional houses from this area of island thatched- triangle shaped , and even visit a genuine one with 240 years before we return! We could include a good local meal or something lighter and return through the coastal villages of the northeast coast.

So on this day you will get island mountain in morning, sea in the afternoon :)

Itinerary

Leaving Funchal to Pico do Arieiro. At an altitude of 1818 metres the third highest peak on the island with amazing views.

A Recent Review of this tour

Another brilliant tour from Nico - we couldn't have been happier with every aspect of the day. He is highly knowledgeable and great company, and clearly knows Madeira like the back of his hand. We're already looking forward to our next tour.
